Single 120. Then you'll have TRIM & not having to deal with raid in case one of the drives dies.

I don't think he was talking about RAID, just an OS SSD and a separate apps SSD.

I'd still get that second SSD as soon as you can afford it. Dewthedew has the right idea.

You'll be surprised how fast that first one fills up.

P.S

Noticed you got an Adata. Which one? Just curious.
